Who knows what’s to come at the West Town intersection of Grand Avenue and Morgan Street. But whatever it is, someone’s in a big hurry to clear some space.
Demolition permits were issued last month for 462 North Morgan and 1001 West Grand, and within days, both properties had been torn down. I didn’t even have time to get a shot of 462 Morgan before it was rubble. Not that there hasn’t been recent activity here; Bennett Day School did a total rehab of the building on the east side of Morgan.
Alliance Demolition did the dirty work. They also palletized tons (I’m guessing here, but probably literally tons) of old brick to be reused somewhere, somehow.
I took photos of the structures on the west end of this block (1005, 1015, 1019) too, just in case they come down as part of this project as well. Only 1019 appears to be occupied.
